AAV

Name, Description Units PHS Fee Non-PHS Academic Fee
AAV

AAV vectors made available through the core carry AAV2 ITR elements serotyped with either AAV1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, or rh10 capsids. AAVs are purified by density gradient centrifugation, followed by FPLC chromatography. Featuring a number of fluorescent proteins, secreted and cytosolic luciferases, bicistronic constructs and tissue-specific promoters, our AAVs are useful for infecting cell cultures as well as tissues in living organisms.

Titer Amount of DNA required
10 11- 10 13 gc/mL 400 µg

Plasmid Prep

Glycerol stock

In order to achieve the highest viral titer possible, the MGH Vector Core requires sterile, endotoxin-free plasmid DNA from its customers. While commercial DNA prep kits are available, many labs find it more convenient and cost-effective to have us do this for them. Below is a table showing the cost for our Plasmid Preparation.

Plasmid Sharing

Name, Description Units PHS Fee Non-PHS Academic Fee
Plasmid Sharing

To cut investigators costs associated with vector development and to foster collaborations among investigators with common interests, We have initiated a Plasmid Sharing Program in which users can search the database of vectors packaged by the core and request the use of a particular plasmid directly from the original investigator. Once the request is approved (by forwarding email/consent to the mghvectorcore@partners.org), investigators can place the order on our website requesting to package the specific plasmid from our Database.
